About Road 13

3352668844_74ab40f45d_o

Road 13 Vineyards is owned and operated by Mick and Pam Luckhurst. Since purchasing the winery in 2003, the Luckhurst’s have focused on making wine that is a reflection of the land, which has given rise to Road 13’s mantra, “It’s all about the dirt.”

Winemaker J-M Bouchard continues this focus by treating the grapes gently and respectfully in order to craft wines with a definite sense of place. Road 13 has three tiers of wine ranging from the very approachable everyday favorites produced under the Honest John’s label, to the high end, complex, age worthy wines of the Jackpot tier. The wine shop at Road 13 is open year round and offers tastings from April to October.

A separate Tasting Lounge is open during the summer months for those who wish for an upscale tasting experience. Road 13 hosts a number of events throughout the year, including the Summer Dinner Series on the 13th of each month from May to October.

Our Wines

Z-OOIVH1wtx_7ORpxBH4SO29f6YmbHMxenasou55-lQ

Honest John’s

These three wines – a white, red and rose – are a tribute to John Oliver, BC Premier from 1918 to 1927. Honest, approachable, and frank these offer value for any occasion and refreshment for everyone from the most discerning wine lover to the thirstiest beer drinker.

Road 13

The Road 13 tier offers a selection of varietal wines and blends that reflect the terrior where the grapes were grown. This includes the winery’s most recognizable blend, Seventy-Four K, as well as a selection of Low Yield wines, made with grapes from vines cropped to a low tonnage that are pressed gently to surrender only the best juice.

Jackpot

Jackpot is the culmination of all things that make a great wine. Hand-crafted from the best vines the Okanagan has to offer, we let the grapes do what they do best – impress. The finished product is age worthy, complex, and profound. Evoking the joy of winning a hard earned prize, Jackpot is a fitting title for our top wines – the reward for our hard work in the vineyard and cellar.
